They were really interested in seeing whether there’s a microbial trigger that causes these minerals to precipitate out of our rock because they’ve found similar minerals on Mars. Basically, it’s a way of figuring out whether microbes are involved in the process of precipitation. And then if so, perhaps there are some microbes on Mars..
California reigns as the nation’s sunglass capital. By one estimate, nearly 25% of all sunglasses sold in 1994 will be sold in California.

Andrew Jackson, “The People’s President,” subscribed to expanding the electorate to include all white male adult citizens rather than landowners exclusively.
